But in the ring, there’s one hat that’s higher, because Gus didn’t end up being a bull rider....

This is a recording made November 1978, featuring narration by Ed Leiby, son of the original Ed Leiby who came to Ellendale to manage the Milwaukee Depot in 1882.  Ned Leiby, grandson of the depot agent, wrote in 1984 that his (Ned's) dad "was Ellendale in many ways, but so too Ellendale was dad." This is one of several surviving recordings made by the second-generation Leiby.  He used to visit local elementary classrooms and walk kids through much of the local history.  His...

This article provides a detailed explanation of the origins, purpose and plan of the Demonstration Rural School (a.k.a. the "model school") built in 1918 on the campus of the State Normal and Industrial School in Ellendale, North Dakota.  Training teachers for rural schools was one of the primary purposes of the State Normal and Industrial School at Ellendale.  The SNI had the advantage, among teacher-training institutions, of a focus on manual arts.  It was therefore an excellent...

This is a church directory published in 1994, 12 years after the Ellendale Assembly of God in Ellendale, North Dakota moved into its new building, which was the former home of the Presbyterian-Methodist congregation.  The church was also often called "the downtown church" to distinguish it from Trinity Christian Center, which was the Assembly of God congregation located on the nearby Trinity Bible College campus. Many of the individuals depicted in this 1994 book were students of...

Louise Pinkney Sooy & Virginia Woodbridge - Plan Your Own Home (Stanford, 1946) was a popular guide for middle class families seeking pleasant living situations in the late 1940s and 1950s.  Its publication date of 1946 suggests an appeal to the postwar generation, which had a widely shared goal of settling down in the suburbs in a peaceful, life-affirming setting.  This book provides remarkable attention to details about home engineering, with plenty of emphasis on arrangement and...

This is a 60-page booklet published in December 1967 for the purpose of describing the town of Ellendale and its various businesses, public services, infrastructure, churches, amenities, and potential as a place to live and/or invest and/or start a new business.  The study bears the imprimatur of Earl H. Redlin, who was the mayor at the time. This is an important historical document as it represents something of a snapshot of the town of Ellendale at one point in its history. It should be...

This is a mimeographed booklet created by members of the Ellendale High School Class of 1965 for their ten year reunion.  The 20-page booklet contains memories and class prophecies, and information about what many of the graduates had done since 1965.  This document provides an interesting parallel to the topics discussed in the bestselling book _What Really Happened to the Class of '65_ by Michael Medved and Irving Wallichinski.  That book gives biographies of graduates from a high school...
